Dada100Zürich2016 collaborated in the first Monte Dada Symposium, which was held on Monte Verità in Ascona on September 12 and 13, 2014. Contrary to what you might be led to believe and given the international relevance of the relationship between Expressionist dance, Monte Verità and Dada, so far, no coherent portrayal of the subject has been produced. This is all the more surprising when considering that there was a lively exchange going on between the dance reformers around Rudolf von Laban and the Dadaists in Zurich from 1913 onward. The project led by Andreas Schwab und Mona de Weerdt aims at closing this gap by 2016.
